A Good Day To Be A Lawyer

Bench & Bar, by Susan Holden

THE HIGHEST COURT

Can you think of a recent moment when you thought it was a good day to be a lawyer? I hope that there are many days when you are proud of your work as a lawyer or judge and proud of our profession and its unique role in our system of justice. For me, one such moment occurred on a mild April morning earlier this year while I was in Washington, D.C.

My taxi stopped directly in front of the building.  I paid the fare, got out, and ascended the white marble staircase toward the magnificent, columned entrance of the United States Supreme Court. It is an impressive structure — a monument to our legal system. A single message, “Equal Justice Under Law,” is engraved high overhead.  On that morning I thought to myself, “It’s a good day to be a lawyer.” I was about to be sworn in to the bar of the United States Supreme Court along with a few of my colleagues, fellow bar leaders from several Midwestern states.

My family was referred to Susan Holden at SiebenCarey by our hometown attorney in a wrongful death case.  She was very accommodating to us and very approachable. Staff was top notch and doggedly pursued two different insurance companies to accomplish an outcome far beyond anything we'd anticipated. We could not have gotten results close to what she achieved without her. We will be forever appreciative.

I have worked on cases with Sue Holden of Sieben Carey for over 20 years. As a trial attorney, I feel confident referring my clients with personal injury issues to Sue, as I know she and her team take the time to listen to their clients, explore and explain their options, monitor their recovery with compassion and persistently advocate for them in negotiations and in court. Sue has the utmost credibility in the legal community and an ability to resolve complex problems. She is highly respected by the courts as well as attorneys for her competence and steadfast dedication to helping injured people. I recommend working with Sue Holden and her team without reservation.

I have referred several personal injury and wrongful death cases to Susan Holden for handling. Susan has been very professional in her approach to these cases and has obtained settlements on behalf of the clients. She also is very courteous, knowledgeable, and has a great "bedside manner" in dealing with her clients. Several clients have thanked me for referring their cases to Susan.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
